What Kind of Adventure Awaits?

Our tagline here at Jabberwocky Audio Theater is “Adventure Awaits!”

But what does that mean?

That means we like tales of adventure in the classic tradition, but with a modern take. If you think of some of the vintage radio programs like Gunsmoke or Escape, you’ll know they covered some grown-up topics, but could still be rated “G” or “PG” today and, okay, yeah, the G-rated films are sometimes PG these days just as some films that would have been rated PG in the 80s are now PG-13, but we still feel it’s a pretty good benchmark.

But showing is always better than telling, so since this our website not the podcast, we can show you a good example of the a classic adventure tale done in a modern style that makes us chortle with joy:

An adaptation of The Count of Monte Cristo may be in the cards in the future… and not necessarily a science fiction one (because that version has been done well and we don’t have the rights to it).

Delia Derbyshire and the Doctor Who Theme

A good theme song gets you into the mood for the show ahead. We love John Maestri’s theme for Rogue Tyger to that end.

What with the current Doctor Who sweepstakes we’re supporting, we thought of the memorable Doctor Who theme in all its incarnations over the decades.

Josh Jones over at Open Culture has a nice piece linking to some videos which gives you some of the background on the creation of the original theme — along with a montage of all the variations of the theme.

We’re looking forward to see how they’re going to adjust the theme for the newest Doctor.

In the meantime, if you like the idea of winning $250 worth of Doctor Who swag, the sweepstakes closes this coming Tuesday, July 17th.

Doctor Who Giveaway!

In case some of you haven’t listened to JAT Chat #1, one of the influences for the format of Rogue Tyger and its cliffhanger endings was the classic Doctor Who serials.

So when the opportunity came to team up with a bunch of other indie creators for a Doctor Who sweepstakes, we said yes! We’re lovers of Doctor Who in one form or another and it’s found a way into our writing. We are also all looking to find new readers (or in our case, listeners), so that’s our insidious master plan. Nothing like the Daleks.

To sign up, go ahead and visit this site before July 17th.

Listen Online! JAT Chat # 1

We’re happy to kick off our inaugural season on WERA-LP 96.7FM. You can listen to our shows live every Sunday at 4pm and catch it again here in podcast form Thursdays at 9pm.

This week, we do the first of what will be periodic “JAT Chats.” In this episode, we talk about some of the reasons we’re doing audio theater and the influences behind Rogue Tyger.

And don’t forget, Rogue Tyger, our debut show, kicks off this coming Sunday, June 17th at 4pm!

Tune in to Jabberwocky Audio Theater starting Sunday, June 10th!

Okay, so we’ve mentioned some of this before, but because we absolutely want anyone and everyone to know, Jabberwocky Audio Theater will be on the actual broadcast airwaves starting Sunday, June 10th at 4pm Eastern Time.

If you’re in the DC metropolitan area, you just might be able to tune into WERA-LP 96.7 FM and hear us each Sunday. It’ll work best in Arlington, Virginia, but we’ve tested the signal around the area and it goes pretty far.

For those of you not in the region, the episodes will be available later in the week on our podcast feed.

The game plan is to start with season one of Rogue Tyger, take a nice, relaxing break destroying the planet with War of the Worlds, and finish up the year with the first installment of Quorum.

In between the runs of those shows, we’ll have a chance to give you some behind-the-scenes listens about the inspiration and making of the episodes as well as answer some of your questions (assuming you all have questions).

We look forward to you joining us on the journey. Adventure awaits!
